Vedder Hall is located in the heart of Bucknell's lower campus, a short walk from the Elaine Langone Center, the 7th Street Café and Lewisburg's vibrant downtown. Vedder is home to more than 350 first-year students, most living in double rooms. Completed in 1965, Vedder is named in honor of donors Lee N. and Grace Q. Vedder.
